BMA seeks B5.6m restitution from EC

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has sent a letter to the Election Command (EC) demanding 5.6 million baht compensation for the damage to the Thai-Japanese sports complex at Din Daeng caused by the clashes between police and anti-election protesters on Dec 23.

Deputy city clerk Manit Techa-apichoke said the dmage occured while the EC was using the sports complex as the venue for the registration of candidates in the party-list system.

There was damage to a dormitory, the sports school, an office building, the football field, sports buildings, swimming pool, fences, lanterns, CCTV cameras, guard booths and gates.

The BMA had sent a letter to the EC, notifying the commission of the damage and seeking restitution, Mr Manit said.

It seems correct and reasonable to ask for compensation on the surface. However, I think it is insidious and has hidden agenda.

Send the bill to the pdrc and its members. Thwy can pass the hat and fix what they broke.

PDRC left already as most know on the incident. Please read up on your facts before spreading rumors.

Why not paid by the problem himself, the Shinawatras?
Discussion 6 : 14/01/2014 at 06:35 PM
You see that very wrong.. Just like the Red Shirts who burned down Bangkok, PDRC protestors should get millions of compensation each... Oh wait...

I trust a detailed "contract" was signed between the owned and the party which used the venue?
Discussion 8 : 14/01/2014 at 05:25 PM
And the PDRC say it id not violent....all that damage in pitch, cctv cameras not to show what they were doing...this must stop. and the 5.6million bath must be paid by the PDRC.....

Judge from the BMA claims of restitution EC, an announced non-violent protest is false.

Seems as if the real offenders are above the law once again, same as 2008.

You have to ask yourself why has it taken so long.
